Business Continuity Management

In Nomura Group, natural disasters such as earthquakes and typhoons, man-made disasters such as fires and terrorism, infectious diseases such as the COVID-19, system failures, and information asset leaks are considered as crisis events that must be prepared for. In order to respond to such an event, we have a comprehensive global business continuity framework and are working on a broad range of measures, including awareness raising activities for our employees.
Nomura Group has organized the Group Crisis Management Committee to continually strengthen the capability of the business continuity in Japan as well as outside of Japan. The Group Crisis Management Committee is chaired by a senior officer appointed by the Group CEO, and comprised of senior management from Group companies. Resolutions passed by the committee are reported to the Executive Management Board. In the event of a major disaster, the committee establishes a command center and takes appropriate measures to ensure the safety of employees and their families, control the spread of damage, and maintain business continuity arrangements.
